2009 Pride Of Britain Awards

Putting away her sexy corset dresses for the night, Kelly Brook wore a black Louis Vuitton Fall 2008 dress which had a peplum at the waist, and a panel of embellishments on the front of her dress.

Her dress was paired with Christian Dior Glam booties.

You may remember that Satsuki Mitchell wore this same dress to the “Defiance” London Premiere back in January this year.

I have several problems with Katherine Jenkins and her Jil Sander sculpted dress.

Firstly she would have looked amazing in the orange dress. So many people wore black on this red carpet, so she would have really stood out in orange.

The most important structured drape on one side of the dress looks really limp, therefore ruining the whole effect of the dress.

Lastly she folded the detail on the shoulder when it should have stood up like on the runway.

This is such a great dress, but she didn’t do it any justice. She might as well have just worn a pencil dress for all the love she is giving to this architectural masterpiece.

Katherine’s look was paired with YSL heels and a black clutch.

I would have been totally in love with Louise Redknapp in her Peter Pilotto digital print dress, had she not worn those ankle boots.

She’s not a particularly tall lady and those boots make her legs look really short.

Dannii Minougue is stunning as always wearing a leopard print strapless Lisa Ho Spring 2009 gown.

The Aussie continues to support designers from her home country both on the red carpet and on the X Factor.

Dannii co-X Factor judge Cheryl Cole also hit the red carpet.

I love the her hot-off-the-runway (2 days to be exact) one-shouldered Chapurin Spring 2010 LBD with the sheer corseted panel on the waist, but it still lacks the wow factor I usually get from Cheryl.

Maybe my expectations are too high, as her everyday style is so impeccable.

Kimberly Walsh of Girls Aloud to walk the red carpet at this event and she wore a cute asymmetrical LBD, with a large rosette detail on the shoulder.

This dress was not a runway dress, but I remember it from the Temperley London Fall 2009 presentation I attended in February were I took a picture of Kimberley exact dress.

Nicola Roberts attended the Vivienne Westwood Spring 2010 show this weekend in Paris.

Bizarrely she wore a Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Lily wedding gown, which is the shorter version of Carrie Bradshaw’s wedding gown.

Her pretty wedding dress was given an edgy as she carried a Alexander McQueen skull knuckle duster whipsnake clutch, and Christian Louboutin Candy Stud Pumps.

Alexandra Burke needs to fire both her make-up artist and her stylist, because on this evidence neither are doing her any justice.

Yes her gown is white, but that doesn’t mean she needs to colour co-ordinate her eye shadow.

Black pumps with a white gown?  Really?

REALLY?

I applaud Myleene Klass for wearing such a risqué dress on a cold and rainy night, but this LBD screams I want to be on the front page in the morning.

Her feathered clutch is adorable though.

Mr & Mrs Kay aka Tess Daly and Vernon Kay walked the red carpet together still looking every much the loved up couple.

He wore a midnight blue suit, whilst she looked gorgeous in a nude shimmering fitted dress with a ruffled bib.

Do shoes come in a colour other than black these days?  I wonder because they seem to be paired with everything on the red carpet.

Socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson looked very happy to be at this event.

The socialite paired a Azzedine Alaia dress with hot red Charlotte Olympia shoes.

Michelle Keegan kept warm from the damp weather by wearing her cute pink Lipsy London heart layer dress which has a bejewelled waistband, with a black blazer.

Abbey Clancy continues to prove that she doesn’t own a dress that doesn’t expose her underwear.

I’m loving that new hair cut on Kara Tointon.  It’s much more sophisticated that the chavy look she had on Eastenders.

The actress thankfully went against the LBD theme and wore a silver sequined fan print dress.  With black pumps of course.

Newlyweds Gary Linekar and Danielle Bux walked the red carpet together.

He looked dapper in a navy suit, whilst she look very sexy in a strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress paired with black sash around her waist.

Although Emma Bunton went with the LBD trend, she did add a gold sequined cape to make her look more interesting.

Lisa Snowdon might as well have worn a LBD as her nude Whistles Abstract sequin dress and those thick tights are not doing her any favours.

What happened to the red carpet sex kitten?

2009 USTA US Open Official Player Party

Emmy Rossum goes from sex kitten at the 2009 Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Annual Installation Luncheon, to chic and ladylike at this event.

The actress wore an ivory Temperley London Resort 2009 dress with a high embellished collar.

The belt perfectly complements the embellished neckline, along with her other gold accessories.

I’m loving the variety of looks Emmy is giving us lately.

Olivia Palermo floor-length Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 floaty dress only reached the knee of the model.

The pint-size New Yorker’s dress had an additional lining from the runway version, which she paired with a gold cuff.

I love the dress, but I’m not crazy about the tan strappy heels.

I would have paired this dress with silver strappy heels.

Venus Williams is usually the best dressed woman on the court with her Eleven by Venus Williams sportswear, but off court her looks used to be questionable until she started to step things up a notch.

This goes in the questionable section. I like the simplicity of the black jumpsuit and the ruffled bib, but the length of the pants bother me.

Who Wore Temperley London Better? Princess Beatrice or Aubrey O’Day

If this was a Disney movie, it would be titled “The Lady and the Tramp”.

Princess Beatrice walked the red carpet with her boyfriend, sister and mother to attend “The Young Victoria” World Premiere held at the Odeon, Leicester Square in London back in March.

She wore a Temperley London Spring 2009 cobalt silk asymmetrical dress with a draped sleeve that links into the bubble hem.

She teamed her dress with silver accessories including heels, clutch and a chain belt.

Aubrey O’Day wore the same dress to the LA premiere of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” with silver Louboutin heels.

At the time I said this was the best I have ever seen Aubrey on the red carpet, as she wasn’t revealing anything and the dress appeared to be the right size for once.

As much as I want to give this to Princess Beatrice, I much prefer Aubrey’s heels and I’m glad she didn’t wear a belt as the jewel detail on the shoulder is enough detail for this dress, so Aubrey wins for me.

Runway To “A Perfect Getaway” LA Premiere – Milla Jovovich In Temperley London

Milla Jovovich loves to dress sexy.

She’s never had a problem showing off her super fit toned body, but for the LA premiere of her latest movie “A Perfect Getaway” she was uncharacteristically covered up.

The actress walked the red carpet wearing a stunning Temperley London Spring 2009 white gown with yellow and silver beaded detail on the shoulders and on the empire waist.

Her look was completed with Christian Dior heels, a diamond bracelet, a silver clutch and a gold necklace.

I was loving the look until I saw the gold necklace. There’s just no need for it as the embellishments on the gown are enough.

I’m also not a fan of mixing gold and silver together.

Runway To ACRIA Event – Sarah Jessica Parker In Temperley London

Sarah Jessica Parker and husband Matthew Broderick attended The AIDS Community Research Initiative of America summer benefit in New York this weekend.

It’s been a while since we last saw SJP – the new mother of twins – at a social event.

As usual she looks beautiful wearing an olive Temperley London Fall 2009 strapless dress with a gold exposed zipper on the front, which she complemented with multiple gold necklaces and gold bracelets.

The Temperley London Fall 2009 collection has an Egyptian military feel to it, but Sarah’s look was anything but.

Her look was soft, feminine with contrasting studded Miu Miu Rivet sandals and a brightly coloured floral clutch for a bit a sassy Carrie flavour.
